Lebanon (MNN) — ABTS has announced the Middle East Consultation 2021.
Like the 2020 Middle East Conversation, the Consultation will be livestreamed due to continuing COVID-19 restrictions. Unlike the 2020 event, which was spread out over several months, MEC 2021 will take place from September 30 to October 2.
Brent Hamoud from ABTS says the event will discuss the future of the Middle Eastern Church through the current crises in Lebanon. “The three days will have three different themes that will all bring us back to the question of ecclesiology.
Hamoud outlines these three themes. “Making disciples: what does this mean and how does it look? Developing leaders: how do we bring up people who will bring churches and ministries forward? And engaging society: how do we think about the role of the Church within the social and public arena? How can the Church be a light and witness within the larger dynamics of society?”

Hamoud also asks readers to pray the event will reach many Christians leaders in the Middle East and beyond. “We’re seeing a Church that is in a dynamic moment. So there’s much to celebrate, much to recognize, and much to rejoice in. But there’s also much to learn. There’s much to question and much to consider.”
